Easy. First, understand that this team is where it currently is by trying to win every game. So this team isn't good to begin with.

Second, yes these guys are professionals and yes, many will be playing for jobs next season, but it is human nature to letdown when you have nothing to play for.

Third, the GM and/or coach can replace players in the lineup. Why risk Henrik and Gabby when there's nothing to play for? Sit them out some games. Bring up some kids to see what they can do.

No one is saying that they should try to lose, but this is a team that already loses consistently without trying to. Once the focus shifts to next year, it will be even more likely that we will lose our remaining games. Of course, the same could be said for the teams behind us, so who knows where we will end up.
